There are perfectly good celebrity style moments, and then there are the looks that really stick with you, the ones you try desperately to recreate at home. In ‘Great Outfits in Fashion History,’ Fashionista editors are revisiting their all-time favorite lewks.

It is a personal and somewhat strongly-held opinion of mine that the fashion industry as a whole hit a creative peak which began somewhere in 2008 and ended roughly in 2013. That isn’t to say there haven’t been highlights since then; rather, it seemed nearly every designer was firing on all cylinders in those years.

Take, for example, Marc Jacobs’s Fall 2009 collection for Louis Vuitton — you know, the one with the black satin bunny ears and thigh-high brocade boots that Madonna modeled in the ad campaign? It’s arguably among his most iconic for the brand, an ode to the ’80s and

Brands Want In on the Archival Fashion Boom

The turmoil of the last twelve months seems to have eliminated trends from fashion, with moods and desires almost impossible to track on a global scale. But one phenomenon still seems poised to dominate 2021: vintage clothing, or “archival fashion,” as the cognoscenti call it. (Funny, that, because “vintage” was developed as the snob’s alternative to “used” and “thrifted.”) Archival, a notch above vintage, is distinguished by the piece’s place in fashion history–it appeared on the runway, started a trend, or has been highly influential. And most importantly, it was created by a historically significant designer.

The pandemic and a new environmental consciousness among young people helped kick off the archival fashion boom. But there’s also a sensibility among Gen Z and Millennials that archival fashion is a way to signal taste and conscientiousness. (If HF Twitter is anything to go by, Gen Z’ers are particularly obsessive about ‘90s and

It is very often used in symbolic communication; fashion is a way of identification and socialization, an obligation of prestige and of course it is an applied art.

Style is created within a person and fashion is created as a result of already existing styles. So, fashion leads an individual on the path that everyone goes on because people
